Keep both.  You see, these are actually two separate ports
(devel/libtool13 and devel/libtool14) and can coexist peacefully with
each other.  (There is actually a devel/libtool15 as well.) The reason
for this is that some ports require libtool13 to work correctly, while
other need libtool14.  Thus both versions are available at the same
time, and some ports depend on one, while some depend on the other.
